I know many are keeping an eye on Greece, so I thought I'd provide this info for your dissemination. Economics is not something I really keep up with, so I will leave it to others to interpret what this may mean for Greece or the larger global economy.

The Greek parliament approved an austerity budget early on Thursday that aims to slash the country’s deficit to 7.4 per cent of gross domestic product in 2011 from a projected 9.6 per cent in 2010.

The budget was passed to secure future disbursements from the €110bn EU-IMF package and contains tax rises and spending cuts, amounting to €14bn ($18.3bn).

The IMF has laid to waste every country they have ever dealt with. If this
does not devastate Greece then it will be an anomaly.

Agreed. There are many reasons behind this, but their has also been some benefits. Please don't throw the baby out with the bath water just yet. Their opinion is important as they have some insights into some of the problems. The world now knows it is up to the world to decide, especially with a difficult topic this critical.

Only because they don't understand it and it's implications. The whole worlds economy is on a knife edge, things are tense everywhere. One bad step and the whole house of cards come down. How do you think it would look in a city with millions of people where all trade is to suddenly stop? The shops have no food, people have no security, earth falls back into a barbarian culture just to survive. Simply, the whole thing is about supply and demand. Anyone in the game knows the only value of money is what the people put into it. This is a numbers game as well, it is many things, many problems. We can only that them one step at a time.
